Served in a pint glass at the Great Lakes brewpub. The color was amber, with a bubbly white head. The smell was a mix of citrus hops and malt. The taste was citrus hops and a good heavy pale malt sweetness. Mouthfeel was average. As for drinkability, could have several,

A very solid ESB from Great Lakes, comparable to their Moondog (and may have been the basis for it). Quite good, and hopefully I'll make it up there to give it another try!

This beer poured a clear copper color and had a thin white head to it. It's crisp with a strong hop bitterness. The hops give off some unique citrus flavors -especially grapefruit rinds. Perfect malt body and a subtle hop aroma. This beer has alot to offer and is a great ESB. This is one I could drink all night.

Wow. This poured with a good head that was slightly darker than most pale ale or bitter heads. This had a good malt and hop nose and was a rich amber in color. This was very close to the Troegs ESB. I wanted to try more beers at the Great Lakes Brewery Pub but this was so good that I stayed with this.
